"A Leaving Song" as written by Jamie Sutherland, Ian Turnbell, Arne Kolb, David Smith, Andrew Keeney, David Fothergill and Rory Sutherland....
Take me up, my only love
For my body is tired
I want a night to feel cool
Against a skin which is bruised
And my heavy heart to rise

Speak to me, my only love
Because I can't be alone
Oh, I need you to talk about
Your days, passing thoughts
Pretend that we're still young
Well, we are, we are not gone!

Sing to me the leaving song
Because I'm not coming back
Oh, the ghosts in this town
Are dragging us down
And I want to feel alive
I want to feel alive!

So won't you save me tonight
From this world and it's own fire
You know my heart and my soul are bursting with desire
So burn all our sea and all the dreams, the scent of
Our fears to admire underneath

So won't you leave with me in body and soul?
Anywhere that we don't know
Anywhere that please, won't break my heart

And anywhere that we might breathe
And anywhere that they can't see
And anywhere that please, won't break my heart

And anywhere that we can rest
And have our thoughts in the sunset
And anywhere that please, won't break my heart
